The accolades keep coming in for Seattle’s Bullitt Center, a commercial building that’s been making headlines for its extreme environmental standards of energy efficiency and performance.
The building recently took first place in World Architecture News’ competition for the world’s most sustainable building. The victor over five other finalists, the Bullitt Center was the only finalist from the U.S.
The center’s use of sustainable materials, including PROSOCO’s R-GUARD® FastFlash® air and water barrier system, Consolideck® LS/CS® and Consolideck® LSGuard®, helped it become net-zero energy-efficient, a facet of the Living Building Challenge. The building has also achieved Passive House standards.
“This building really sets the debate about how to design buildings to be truly sustainable and make the lowest possible impact,” one judge of the competition is quoted saying.
